  • Heartfelt condolences to the entire family. I will miss Grace so very much, her giggles when she was clearly up to something ornery and the way her eyes smiled when she spoke of her grandchildren. I rejoice in knowing she and Bill are together again. Love to you all.

  • My sympathy to the family on the loss of Grace. Prayers and thoughts going your way.

  • Dear Steven and Jim,
    My deepest condolences to your entire family in the loss of your mother.
    You may remember our Ceccola family as your next door neighbors back in the 1960’s. Your mom was my best friend, and you both played together with my sons, Vince and Mark. We took you all to see the Batman car at a car dealership in Wilmington.
    I still have pictures and wonderful memories of your family, and can still remember the smell of your mom’s spaghetti sauce and stuffed peppers.
    God bless you all and hold on to your precious memories.
